Christmas Crafts at Sharpham

This year Christmas at The Sharpham Trust is hand-made, with two Saturdays of crafts!

We’re running a day-long craft session of Christmas willow decorations on Saturday 9 December, and a Christmas wreath-making session on Saturday 16 December. Both courses will run from 10am - 2pm in the South Wing at The Sharpham Trust and will be taught by Vivienne Turner.

Vivienne is a professional basket-weaver and willow-worker, regularly teaching in Totnes and South Devon. Her sculptures have been shown at Birmingham NEC and at the Chelsea Flower Show and she has worked on pieces for the Eden Project in Cornwall.
